Question about Minolta X-700 35mm SLR Camera
I took a pic of my cat a couple of hours ago, when I took the pic the shuter went down and did not go back up.I tried to wind it agin but it was stuk.
How do I fix this. Please E-mail me back at TurboRay11@gmail.com By.
The first thing to check are the batteries make sure they are good.
Second thing to check, are you at the end of the film?, I have had lots of customers think they have a 36 exp film in the camera, only to find it is a 24 exp running out of film will stop the shutter and winding from re cocking
Third thing to check if the batteries are good is the position of the mirror, if it is stuck in the up position it may be that the shutter has just hung up, this happens when the camera gets a little olde and the grease in the shutter mech dries up and the shutter blinds get a bit stiff.
A shutter overhaul will fix this but you may be able to free up as a temporary measure. Follow the following steps.
1. Remove the film from the camera.
2. Open the back cover.
3. Hold the camera so you are applying a little pressure on the wind on lever.
4. Very gently and slowly press your thumb onto the shutter curtain material about 5-6mm, just enough to apply a little tension to the material but not enough for it to come out of its side locations.
If the shutter has just hung up this extra tension will cause the mirror to come back down and then allow you to carry on winding.
